A new study from Danish researchers suggests that people that played social or team sports, such as tennis or soccer, tend to live longer than those that who do solitary fitness, such as jogging, swimming or cycling. The study found that all exercise increased longevity, but, while cycling added 3.7 years and running 3.2 to a person’s life, tennis added 9.7, badminton added 6.2, and soccer added roughly 5 years. Researchers suggest that the social interaction component in exercise seems to have unique and added physiological and psychological benefits.
